I fell in love with this pattern when I saw it on Kevin the Quilter's blog back in 2013. Love his rendition in blues and purples. He is a scrappy quilter, like me.
I immediately ordered Kathy's book and set to work cutting strips from my ton of older scraps. I had been wanting to make a quilt with a modern design but using up my older scraps. I discovered that I was running short and needed a few brighter colours to add to the mix. So, with help from a friend's scrap bag, I had the brightness I wanted and I am calling my version "Searching for Scraps"
I completed the piecing in fall of 2013 and then it just sat......until just recently when I decided to quilt it up.
I used two different wavy stitches on my Pfaff QE4.0 and stitched straight across from side to side and the resulting texture is wonderful!
Thread - Wonderfil Tutti 50# Colour TU38 - a very subtle variegated beige
